Bipartite geminiviruses are small, plant-infecting viruses with genomes composed of circular, single-stranded DNA molecules, designated A and B. Although they are closely related genetically, individual bipartite geminiviruses frequently exhibit host-specific adaptation. Two such viruses are bean golden mosaic virus (BGMV) and tomato golden mosaic virus (TGMV), which are well adapted to common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) and Nicotiana benthamiana, respectively. In previous studies, partial host… CONTINUE READING
